Flickr Selects EZ Prints to Provide Fulfillment of Photo Printing

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 10, 2005--EZ Prints, Inc., a leader in high-quality photofinishing services, announced today that it will provide high-quality digital photofinishing fulfillment services to online photo sharing innovator, Flickr. Flickr, which is still being beta tested, has become an instant hit among photo enthusiasts who are drawn to the uniquely social aspects of the site. By partnering with EZ Prints, Flickr customers will also have access to an array of high-quality photographic products.

Flickr currently has over 360,000 members and is growing at approximately 30 percent per month. The service allows people to share photos with friends and family, and also gives users the option to add select photos to one of Flickr's popular specialty groups, or to the Flickr public photo collection, which currently houses over five million searchable images from around the world. The new printing options will be available when the service is officially launched later in 2005.

"Flickr is known throughout the online community as one of the best overall blog and image sharing experiences," said Jamie Bardin, president and CEO of EZ Prints. "With their cutting edge technology and our high-quality output, this partnership is a solid win for everybody."

"Demand from our customers for prints and photo-related products are on the rise," said Stewart Butterfield, president and CEO of Flickr. "We evaluated many of different potential partners and were impressed with the capabilities offered by EZ Prints, as well as the strong recommendations they received from several longtime customers."
